Artmedia News

Welcome to the autumn edition of the e-publishing quarterly from
Artmedia for 2003. This newsletter now reaches over 8,000
writers, publishers, bookshops, libraries and media-smiths in
Australia, New Zealand, America, Canada and worldwide.

Relaxing the frequency of this publication to a quarterly has paid
off, in a huge selection of networking items, and a paid feature in
this issue, covering our costs. ( Just Aus$50 to feature here ).

Our feature is a major retrospective showing at Canberra's
National Portrait Gallery of photographer Lewis Morley's work,
together with information on the DVD which is available here to
artmedia subscribers.

Considered one of the significant voices of 1960's London, Lewis
Morley took some of the singular iconic images of this period, plus
a sampling of fringe actors, musicians, and artists, including Barry
Humphries, and, more recently, Peter Carey. The DVD has Lewis
discussing the background to some of these sessions.

We also feature some readings from my book, Believers in Love,
and invite subscribers to my next reading in New York, on Sunday
June 1st, 5pm to 7pm, Tribes Gallery Garden, 285 E. 3rd St.,
2nd flr - between Aves C & D. More information below.

In the networking we carry applications for the Poets On Wheels
tour of NSW, and the State Library of Victoria Creative
Fellowships, both of which close in a couple of days, so be quick.

We also have a multimedia theme, with information on the
Fasttrack Film School, run by GuerrillaVision in Penrith, Sydney,
and an on-line content portal for independent film and music, and
on the upcoming Melbourne digital arts and culture conference.

We aim to provide an avenue of communication for the growing
electronic publishing community worldwide, so please send us
information for inclusion in this newsletter. Details of our web-site
and newsletter advertising deals are also at the bottom of this page.
Please also forward this to somebody else who may be interested.

"Profound observations of life, art and love... Believers in Love
is a powerfully creative work, with prose that sings like poetry.
Beautifully told and evocatively rendered, this novel comes very
highly recommended." wordweaving.com


"Australia's best-known poetry touring project is up and running
again, this time exploring western New South Wales by train.
One of the previous poets says, "Irrespective of whether you're
'up-and-coming' or have just had your 30th book published, these
tours are an invaluable once-in-a-lifetime experience. Go for it!"
For a week around the end of October, the poets will be
performing and running workshops in a range of venues from pubs
to schools. You'll learn a lot, sell books, be happy and exhausted.
Applicants will need to: have some experience in reading and
workshopping, be flexible, have an ABN, and be a member of the
Poets Union ( you can join at the same time you apply ) The Poets
Union actively encourages diversity -- regional, stylistic, gender
and professional development stage. Last year, none of those
chosen came from Sydney. Those who have already been on a
POW tour are ineligible to apply. You will be paid $850, have all
NSW train travel plus "on tour" accommodation paid. Please send
a CV detailing relevant experience, along with five pages of sample
poetry to: Poets Union, P.O. Box 91, Balmain 2041, Australia.
Applications must be received by 30th April." Les Wicks
